Hey, wouldn't it be killer if someone uploaded "Der Januskopf"? I know it ain't very likely but wouldn't it be cool?

Thanks for cluing me in on the details and the origins of this film, folks. I never would have thought to look under the German title as I didn't consider the possibility that this might be a foriegn film. Another thing that would throw you off track was the opening scene with the Boy Scouts and the scoutmaster telling the story, but I suspect that footage was added later by American filmakers to hide the German origin, but I could be wrong. My version may be an altered version of the original film discussed at IMDB.

Scouting started in 1907 Britain and by 1910 had spread all over the continent, so those guys probably WERE German Scouts. BSA is only a part of Scouting, you know.

Cool! Deerslayer definitely is a Bela film, by the way.

And hey, thanks again for Teenagers Battle the Thing, uploaded oh so long ago (long ago in internet time, that is). One of my favorite "lost films" found here on the IA.

Yes, that is Lugosi. It's a German production, listed in IMDb as "Lederstrumpf, 1. Teil: Der Wildtöter und Chingachgook." The original length is about an hour; do you have any idea what's been cut?

Could you also please move Star Wreck - UK Edition. You've already moved the official version to features, so my version belongs there too:
